The novelty of this paper is indicated by a series of experimental measurements aimed at enhancing the detectability of targets immersed in scattered solutions. The experimental results clearly show that polarimetric images of superior quality can be obtained by doping the background surrounding the target with polar or high-dielectric molecules, yielding an enhanced contrast and specificity of the target. In addition, it is observed that degree of linear polarization (DOLP) images exhibit superior image characteristics with respect to total intensity (S0) images with the increase in the concentration of the optical scattering agents.
